A Sandwich in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
November 25, 2022: Now that we've had the game for a week, we have checked over our information

The best Pokemon Scarlet and Violet sandwich recipes can boost your EXP gains and increase your odds of finding a shiny. Everyone knows that a key part of being a Pokémon trainer is that you need to look after your team. Whether it's rushing them to a Pokémon Center after a battle, or now setting up a picnic for them, great care must be taken. So let's take a look at


In Generation 9, we'll be able to set up a picnic table and hang out with our creature friends. Here, we can craft plenty of Sandwiches to feed to our Pokémon, in order to gain boosts and benefits during our exploration. Not only will we be able to feed them, but we can shower them and play with them here too to raise friendships.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet sandwich recipes list

There are over 80 different sandwich recipes that we can make in Scarlet and Violet, each with its own combination of three different benefits. We'd better get our chef's hats on and start cooking!


Sandwiches are made of bread (obviously), a choice of fillings, condiments, and then a stick to hold it all together.

The condiments include Olive oil, mustard, and mayonnaise, and the fillings are Cucumber, Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Lettuce, Pickle, Onion, Red Onion, Green Pepper, Red Pepper, Yellow Pepper, and Butter. These will likely be either harvestable, purchasable, or found as drops from wild Pokémon battles.

For now, only a couple of recipes have been confirmed, but we'll update once we get our hands on the game and start finding more.

You can use the new Herba Mystica in sandwiches too; specifically to give a boost to which Shiny or Paradox Pokemon you'll encounter, or how many mass outbreaks there will be.

These sandwiches will dramatically increase your chances of coming across a Pokemon of that type and boost the shiny odds as well. So, if you're looking for a shiny Mimikyu, for example, you'll want to use the Creative Mode in the Picnic sandwich menu to make a meal consisting of one Red Onion and two Salty Herba Mystica.


There are three kinds of Herba Mystica - Sweet, Salty, and Sour. These Herbs are dropped in 5-Star raids, and each Titan Pokémon will give a different kind. This does mean we'll have to grind a bit to get enough for our picnics!
